Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
AlhamduliLlah we meet many. It’s also the first time that we are together. We are thanking Allah ﷻ for this. Our gathering is AlhamduLillah for the sake of Allah ﷻ, for the love of Prophet ﷺ. This is the most important thing in our life.
Today AlhamduliLlah we visited some – we’ve been in Italy since a few days – today we visited this city [Venice] which was built on water and they said it’s the (most) richest city in the world. People are coming there, those who don’t have any idea what they were created for, just to satisfy their ego. Each one making something funny and making people take photos of him or her. You see such people doing nonsense things thinking they will be happy by this. We visited Venice, we visited Milano, we visited here, there – they are not happy, they are proud. They think they’ll be happy when they say this to other people. This visit is not giving any benefit for themselves: not only for their spirituality, it’s not giving any benefit for everything.
Our life is a gift from our Creator Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. He ﷻ created us as human beings. And He ﷻ showed us and gave us thinking to know everything. We are not like animals: not knowing anything. We know everything. For this, Allah ﷻ is not happy with people when – when you give some precious thing to somebody and he doesn’t appreciate it, you become angry, “I gave him such a precious thing and he didn’t take care of it.” So they lose it. How must our life be precious? How can we keep it as a good gift without losing it? How can we do this? Your life becomes precious and there becomes meaning for your life with the love of Allah ﷻ, love of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam.
This life is only a very short thing. It is as you open and close your eyes. It is just like this in the time of – even in your time it’s like this. So this time must be well kept and well done with. And it’s not difficult for human beings: they must just accept their Lord, they must accept the Creator and accept what He ﷻ orders. He ﷻ created us – here in Italy there are many factories for machinery, and for each machine they give instructions on how to use it. Allah ﷻ created us and gave us instructions on how we must do to be a good machine. Not like what they said yesterday: Leonardo Da Vinci was trying to fly but he was afraid so he put some people to fly and everyone came falling down on their heads and passed away, they were finished. [Leonardo would tell them,] “Sorry. Come! Another one!”
But Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla knows. He ﷻ knows everything. We cannot compare His ﷻ Knowledge with our knowledge. We cannot say ‘compare’; this is a bad word. Sorry, AstaghfiruLlah that we said this. The whole universe’s knowledge is not one drop but one atom from knowledge. If you say this it means He ﷻ has a limit. But He ﷻ doesn’t have a limit. And with His ﷻ Mercy He ﷻ gave you this value and told you to do what’s good for you and you are refusing and saying, “No, I will do this. It will be better for me.” For this, the whole world is in a big mess, big unhappiness, big crisis. Everything is bad in this world because this thinking of people is controlling the whole world. The lucky one is the one who finds the way to be a good servant for Allah ﷻ, a lover of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. They are lucky people.
Because these people are really affecting other people and the other people think they are something. For this, we are asking protection from Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla for every one of us, for children especially. Because now they’re aiming for children, they are attacking them wildly. And if they’re saying anything, they say, “You are not good parents.” So they can even take them from them. Insha’Allah we must teach the love of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam for our children, for our relatives, for anyone from Muslims. And non-Muslims also must know because they are teaching them very bad thing about Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. Because he ﷺ is the most merciful for his ﷺ nation, for his ﷺ Ummah. In every occasion, he ﷺ was asking for forgiveness for his ﷺ Ummah from Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla.
AlhamduliLlah tomorrow is the last day of Safar. Saturday is the first day of Rabih Al-Awwal, the month of the birth of our Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. This month, we must make more Salawat on Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam, ask him for Shafa’ah (intercession) for us, for our ancestors and children, for protection, for love towards him ﷺ for us and for our children.
May Allah ﷻ for the sake of this holy month help Muslims everywhere, help human beings everywhere, to show them the way, the right way, the way of happiness. Because human beings tried everything like communism, socialism, capitalism, -ism, -ism, many things; they tried them all but nothing helped them. The only way for human beings to be safe is to follow Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. And in the end, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla’s promise is that the whole world will be insha’Allah accepting Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. That time, there will be peace for the whole world. Otherwise, there cannot be any peace in this world. The only way: Salam Islam. (The only way for Salam (peace) is Islam.) May Allah ﷻ make these days to come quickly to save the whole world from this.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
